Innominat, also known as Kanonushi (カノヌシ Kanonushi?) in Japanese, is a major antagonist in Tales of Berseria. He is one of the five Empyreans, is an extremely powerful Malak that Artorius Collbrande and the Exorcists summoned to purge all human emotion in order to cleanse the world of Daemonblight. He takes on the form of Velvet's sacrificed and deceased brother and serves as the secondary antagonist of the game. He is mentioned in Tales of Zestiria.
Innominat is the deity worshipped by the Abbey 1,000 years before the story of Tales of Zestiria. Known as the 5th Empyrean, he is the great Empyrean of Suppression whom the Abbey, more specifically Artorius Collbrande, is attempting to revive so that he may sunder emotion from humanity and "free" the world of malevolence.
Innominat is depicted in a children's book as an eight-headed serpent. When reborn, Innominat takes the form of Laphicet Crowe with the outfit of the Empyrean.
In it's eight-headed serpent form, Innominat lies dormant until the Advent, in which he assumes the body of the sacrificed Laphicet Crowe by the hands of Artorius, the very event that prompted the protagonist Velvet Crowe's path of vengeance. It is not revealed until much later in the story, however, that Laphicet was reincarnated as Innominat, who required two Scarlet Night sacrifices in order to fully incarnate himself into the world. The first sacrifice was Artorius and Celica Crowe's nameless, unborn child during the Opening, and the second was Laphicet during the Advent, during which Innominat finishes his incarnation by making Laphicet his malakhim vessel.
Although Innominat carries with him Laphicet's memories, with which he uses to taunt Velvet, he is an autonomous being who adheres to Artorius's goals in his insatiable desire for malevolence, which he feeds upon. Through seven therions located at different earthpulse points across the world, Innominat uses these "mouths" to strengthen himself, though he requires eight different types of malevolence in order to reach his fullest potential and engulf the planet in a large enough domain that will suppress the entirety of humanity's emotions. These malevolent types are hatred, despair, greed, conceit, obsession, lust, cowardice, and selfishness.
Artorius manages to feed Innominat with six of the eight required types before needing only the two Velvet holds in her possession: hatred and despair.
